ⓘ Utah State Route 241

State Route 241 is a state highway completely within Utah County in northern Utah, in the cities of Orem and Lindon. The route connects SR-114 to US-89 via an interchange at 1-15.

                                     

1. Route description

The route begins at an intersection with SR-114 Geneva Road on the boundary of Orem and Lindon and heads due east on 1600 North. After coming to a diamond interchange with I-15 after only 0.2 miles 0.32 km, the route continues for approximately 1.15 miles 1.85 km to its eastern terminus at US-89 State Street. Much of the route is located on the Lindon-Orem municipal boundary; as such, though it is primarily referred to as 1600 North, it is also 600 South in the Lindon grid system.

                                     

2. History

Before Interstate 15 was built, truck traffic bound for the Geneva Steel mill used SR-114 to access the mill. However, with the construction of the interstate, heavy truck traffic associated with the steel mill began to use 1600 North to connect to the I-15 interchange. The city of Orem, who maintained the road at the time, felt that this truck traffic was of statewide significance, and as such requested that this portion of 1600 North be added to the state highway system. However, at the time, the Utah Department of Transportation would not accept the road due to its poor condition. After Orem had reconstructed the roadway, it was added to the state highway system in 1969 as SR-241.

The route remained unchanged until 2019. By that time, the city of Orem did not have adequate funding to make necessary improvements to the 1600 North corridor between I-15 and US-89, so the cities requested that UDOT take over this segment of roadway. The Utah Transportation Commission approved the extension of SR-241 on November 15, 2019, after Orem, Lindon, and UDOT had signed a cooperative agreement detailing the terms of the jurisdictional transfer.
